Paul Robinson, now back to full strength after his mysterious sickness, which turned out to be a sinus infection that he never got antibiotics for and the flu.
In Nevada's Gateway Canyon, at Red Rocks, he has made the first ascent of Meadowlark Lemon, 8C.
The new problem adds an ~8B sit start to Meadowlark lemon stand, 8B, and is according to Robinson comparable in difficulty to his own Lucid dreaming. This would make it hard 8C bordering on 8C+.
Talking to 27Crags, Paul says:
"I considered it one of the best lines I have ever climbed on in the entire world. The boulder is super physical, yet really technical. The crux revolves around some really crazy heel hooks on the left arete."
